Scheduling an Advising Appointment:

All appointments with the academic advisor should be scheduled online through the MyCUhub website.


  • Minors should ask questions during walk-ins and via e-mail. If you are not available during these times, please let your advisor know via e-mail to can set up a time to meet.
  • Your degree audit shows your progress toward minor completion. If you believe it looks accurate and you plan on completing the minor, you don’t need to do anything else for the minor to prepare for graduation! If it does not look correct, or if you want to drop the minor, please contact your advisor.


  • Majors need to make an appointment for questions such as “How many more classes do I need to finish my degree?” or “What courses should I take next term?” My walk-ins are for short questions and major/minor declaration.
  • All APPOINTMENTS are held in Hellems 2. To make an appointment, please visit Note that you are able to schedule appointments for the upcoming two weeks. Your advisor generally does not schedule advising appointments via e-mail.
  • When you plan to meet with your advisor, please keep in mind that January, March, April, August, October, and November are the busiest times. It may be much easier to make an appointment in February, early March, September, and early October. In general, most majors should meet with their advisor at least once a year, and will help ensure that you’re on track to graduate.
  • Be sure to consult your official academic advisor for a degree audit as you near graduation, and fill out graduation paperwork at least nine months before you graduate.
